Study the power point to get to know this week’s idioms.
Listen to the dialogue between Syd and Len.
|Syd:||Hey Len, how is your son doing ? My daughter told me he was under the weather.|
|Len:||He is doing better now. We all need to recharge our batteries from time to time. By the way, did you hear about Mrs. Ali, the grade 2 teacher?|
|Syd:||No, I didn’t. What happened?|
|Len:||She received news that she has cancer.|
|Syd:||Really? I am part of the Parent Council. I am surprised that this wasn’t discussed at the last meeting.|
|Len:||It’s a recent diagnosis, I believe. Mrs. Ali is my youngest daughter’s teacher. She is very sweet, caring, and kind soul. Private person, though. I heard from Joanne that she was getting ready to retire…|
|Syd:||Well, I do hope she gets a clean bill of health. Funny, she ran a half-marathon last year and donated all the proceeds to the Parent Council. Obviously, she is not in bad shape for her age.|
|Len:||For some people, news like this gives them a new lease on life. Though, mind you, Mrs. Ali already has such a positive attitude. I hope she is back in the classroom soon.|
